After working the last few samples the fancy bobbin edging sampler was completed.
This sample was worked with basic buttonhole stitch rows.
It was enhanced with fancy bobbin edging.
This sample is filled with freely worked fancy bobbin edging stitches.
A variation of buttonhole stitches with fancy bobbin edging are worked on this sample.
Bugle beads are used in this sample.
In this sample after working buttonhole variations, the green stone is embellished with one row of detached fancy bobbin edging worked over back stitch. This embellishing the stone idea was seen in Mary’s needle n thread site in one of her projects. I used a stone with holes which can be attached to the fabric before working the stitch.
Sometimes it was interesting and stimulating, but at other times it was also demanding and draining. I used #7 crewel needle and chenille needle. The threads were taken from the used pile. With a very small stash of perle cotton or other kind of threads, I mainly use stranded cotton. On the whole it was an interesting project to work.
